    modem issue - mandriva free 2006


    Hi folks,

    I've installed Mandriva free 2006 and am having issues getting on to the net. I'm using eagle-usb thats provided with the package. However the modem doesnt seem to be operational (I did manage to get this running previsouly under 10.1 so know that the modem can work with linux).

    I've done eagleconfig and am told

    /usr/sbin/pppd - no such file
    erro reading info about service eagle-usb: no such file or directory

    following is output from eagle diagnostics:

    Diagnostic (1.22 2005/03/20) driver eagle-usb 20060419142033
    # System Information
    Linux localhost 2.6.12-12mdksmp #1 SMP Fri Sep 9 17:43:23 CEST 2005 i686 Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz unknown GNU/Linux

    The following is output after running eaglectrl -w

    Pretty much a newbie still but eager to learn!

    Thanks

    There was a bugfixed package for the eagle-usb uploaded in december. Try the new package, maybe it helps.

    Thanks for that.

    As I'm unable to connect via linux, any ideas how I can get hold of this package??

    Download it in windows or mac or whatever you use currently, then copy it to e.g. a usb-stick. From there, copy the file to your Mandriva system and double click the file. That should be all you have to do.

    Sorry not a very clear response on my behalf. I was actually wondering how to get these rpms as there was no link to where I could download these.

    Anyway I have downloaded and updaed (rpm -Uvh xxx.rpm), and rebooted. ppp0 interface still fails on boot
